This outstanding dictionary is based on over ten years of research and has been compiled from a unique electronic database of current language reflecting the efforts of a team of lexicographers from the United States, Latin America, Great Britain, and Spain, who painstakingly investigated vocabulary, meanings, and grammatical usage in their particular regions. The result is a work of unprecedented authority that accurately reflects how both languages are spoken and written in all contexts--from literature to informal speech to technical and scientific publications--and in all locales. Throughout, thematic boxes deal with key areas such as age, time, countries, and sports, while a center section provides sample letters, CVs, small advertisements, job applications, tips on making reservations, and general advice on formulating letters in Spanish. In addition, comprehensive and lucid guidance on key constructions, complementation, and difficult points of grammar, as well as complete verb tables make grasping the Spanish language less daunting and more enjoyable.
Completely up-to-date with the latest words and expressions and thousands of example sentences carefully selected from real speech and written sources to illustrate the full range of meanings and typical contexts, The Pocket Oxford Spanish Dictionary will be indispensable to anyone looking for a quick and easy reference to the Spanish language.
